The ACA enrollment surge, by the numbers

Although we won't know for at least a few weeks how many people signed up for insurance under the Affordable Care Act, one thing is clear: There clearly has been an uptick in enrollment in recent days. Here's a look at how interest in coverage has accelerated and what advocates are doing to get people covered -- or at least in the system -- by midnight Monday, the deadline to sign up for a health-care plan without risking a penalty.

8.7 million. That's how many visits HealthCare.gov has had in the past week, with 2 million this past weekend.

65,000. That's how many text messages the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has sent over the past week to people who have started the enrollment process but not completed it, reminding them what they need to do to finish by the March 31 deadline.

More than 100. That's how many celebrities and athletes -- including LeBron James and Julia Louis-Dreyfus -- tweeted on behalf of the law.

646,000. That's the record for how many calls the 1-800-Medicare call center received in one day, on May 15, 2006 (the last day of the initial open enrollment period for Medicare Part D). The federal health insurance marketplace call center is likely to break that record Monday; the most calls it has received over the past six months was 564,000 on Dec. 23.

john miller @deaconmill
Per GOP & MSM: If final enrollment figure is 6,999,999, ObamaCare is a failure because didn't hit 7 million & 2 people did not pay premium.
